Media Massa dan Media sosial di seluruh dunia gempar. Top ‘Breaking News’ (Reuter, CNNI, BBC, dll) hari ini (Selasa, 20/7/2021), yang bertepatan dengan Hari Raya Idul Adha, orang terkaya di dunia (versi Forbes; sekitar USD 200 billion) Jeff Bezos ‘terbang ke Bulan.

Pada tanggal ini, tahun 1969, nama Pesawat Apolo Alan Shepard yang pertama mendaratkan astronut Neil Amstrong dan Edwin Aldrin ke Bulan karena memang seorang astronut. Tapi, Jeff Bezos Bigbos Amazon yang menggantikan posisi Bos Tesla Mr Elon Musk sebagai orang terkaya di dunia (sejak awal Juli 2021) ini ke Planet Bulan (naik Apolo ‘

private commercial space tourism’) t

entu bukan sekedar piknik atau bersenang-senang. Apa motivasinya yang sebenarnya?

Tentu, butuh wawancara eksklusif. Sementara, hanya kutipan berikut ini yang bisa diketahui informasinya:

“Best day ever,” Bezos said after the space capsule touched down, kicking up a cloud of dust on the desert floor. The 57-year-old American billionaire, wearing a blue flight suit and donning a cowboy hat, was joined by three crewmates for a trip to the edge of space lasting about 10 minutes and 20 seconds. After landing and exiting the space capsule, Bezos and the other crew members exchanged hugs and popped champagne, spraying each other.

“Astronaut Bezos in my seat – happy, happy, happy,” Bezos said in response to a mission control status check after the crew members buckled back in aboard New Shepard’s capsule following a few minutes of weightlessness in space.

Bezos, founder of ecommerce company Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O), and his brother Mark Bezos, a private equity executive, were joined by two others. Pioneering female aviator Wally Funk, 82, and recent high school graduate Oliver Daemen, 18, become the oldest and youngest people to reach space.

The fully autonomous 60-foot-tall (18.3-meters-tall) gleaming white spacecraft, with a blue feather design on its side, ignited its BE-3 engines for a liftoff from Blue Origin’s Launch Site One facility about 20 miles (32 km) outside the rural town of Van Horn. There were generally clear skies with a few patchy clouds on a cool morning for the launch.

Semoga saja kembali pulang ke Bumi dengan selamat nantinya. Orang terkaya di dunia ini, di tengah kondisi Pandemi COVID-19  yang membuat ‘habit’ konsumen beralih ke ‘online’; membuat Big Bos Amazon ini ‘panen raya’. Mr Elon Musk tentu tak mengira kalau kekayaan rivalnya itu bisa melesat hampir dua kali lipat daripada kekayaannya. Ya, semoga juga di Bulan tak ada Virus Corona.
